Clapton CFC men’s first team have been drawn away to Old Parmiterians in the Anagram Records Trophy on November 20th.
The winners will face Middlesex County Football League opposition – away at either NW London or AEK London.
Old Parmiterians were formed in 1898 and are now the largest adult club in the country with a total of 14 men’s teams, most of whom play at the Douglas Eyre Centre in Walthamstow.
However, their first team play their home games in Garston near Watford at Parmiters School Sports Centre, which is connected to the comprehensive school.
They are currently 15th in the second tier of the Hertfordshire Senior League, which is one level below CCFC.
The Anagram Records Trophy – aka the Capital Counties Feeder League Trophy – is for teams in the south east of England who don’t qualify for the FA Vase.
Clapton CFC reached the ART final in 2018/19, losing to Catholic United who were then a level higher in front of 540 spectators at Redbridge’s Oakside.
The tournament has not been held since then due to Covid-19.
